To Our
Confederate Dead
1861-1865,


Left side


They fell devoted, but undying;
The very gale their names seem'd sighing:
The waters murmur'd of their name;
The woods were peopled with their fame;
The silent pillar, lone and gray,
Claim'd kindred with their sacred clay;
Their spirits wrapp'd the dusky mountain,
Their memory sparkled o'er the mountain,
The meanest rill, the mightiest river,
Roll'd mingling with their fame forever.
____________ Byron.


Rear

To the heroes
of Lafayette County
whose valor and devotion
made glorious many a
battlefield.
